    Hi all loyal Dreamcast owners, can My US dreamcast play Japanese games without any boot disc? I read online it can play import games if it was manufactured before October 2000 and is either model "0" or "1"...but a little unclear what else I need to play import games.

    Has anyone tried playing import games on their US Dreamcast without DC-x or other boot disk?

    Thanks all!

    Not ignoring your thread, just really don't know. I had an assload of bootleg movies and emulators on the DC, but never anything import.

    I haven't heard of the DC being able to play import games w/o a boot disc. If you need a DC-X boot disc, I have a minty one complete w/ original case and instructions for sale/trade!

    What Bradders said. the DC is still pretty well supported in homebrew circles, and such things are easy to find.

    my us DC plays any game with the right boot disc. from my experience the gameshark disc works best.
